Album Photo – “The real is saturated with politics. It is henceforth commonplace that an objective, a phenomenon, a word or a gesture is qualified by this vague epithet agglomerating pell-mell concepts — the social and the societal, the real and the realism, the criticism, the truth. This “political” there is the adjective without which the existence in the world seems today illegitimate.

Photography is no exception to this phenomenon. It sometimes suffers from this “too much politics” to the point that the capture of reality – yet at the foundation of the photographic medium – is overtaken by its own analysis. To make this choice is to risk reducing the image to a visual message, to reduce the real to a symbol driver.

In the end, shouldn’t the camera play only its organic and primordial role of an eye endowed with memory? Then, looking at daiy life within reach of the lens, one could possibly detect those moments outside the world and time that radiate a powerful energy, inexplicable to the point of seeming surreal.”
